Meeting Point: Teneriffe
Over the past 15 years, Newstead and Teneriffe have undergone a dramatic transformation from a run-down former industrial suburb, to a desirable, upmarket riverside precinct.
This area is now one of Brisbane’s most desirable and iconic destinations.
On this walking tour, you will visit several food and drink venues along the way and sample a mix of savoury and sweet products.
There is also a variety of food educational demonstrations, such as chocolate making techniques. You will also learn about how the venues were established and why the owners are so passionate about their craft.
Throughout the tour, your host will also point out places of interest, and tell historical stories about Newstead’s connection to World War 2, including walking past Australia’s largest submarine base, as well as an existing air raid shelter.
The tour price covers all food samples, but cannot accommodate for gluten or dairy free.
A serving of alcohol is included, with non-alcoholic alternatives available. We do not recommend customers under the age of 18 to attend.

Tamara was a fantastic guide and made the event enjoyable in spite of the rain. Loved the chocolatier and gelato place both of which I never knew existed and will definitely visit. Was a very enjoyable afternoon/early evening. 5/5 by Kalpana Patel 12-3-2018
Had a wonderful afternoon. Ate some delicious food. The length of time it took was good. It was good value for money.
Our tour leader, Tamara, was just new but she was really enthusiastic and very friendly. Made everyone feel very welcome.She helped us by taking photos of my husband and I, rather than trying to do a selfie!
Our group was a good size, if there had been more, it would have been ungainly.
Certainly learnt a lot about the area and enjoyed the food and drinks. We headed back to the area the following week as we passed a Vietnamese place which looked great.
It was a lovely way to explore a part of Brisbane we usually don't usually frequent. 5/5 by Fiona Turner 10-3-2018
Great event. We enjoyed the fact that one place catered for our dietry needs.
Tamara was very informative, helpful and went out of her way to help any way she could.
The restaurant food was of excellent quality, with great atmosphere and most gave us a indepth description of their history of the food, establishment and owners background.
Thoroughly enjoyed the tour. 5/5 by Tonia Gilbert 24-2-2018

We had a really lovely afternoon. Tour guide Terry took us to 5 different places - chocolate, gelato, tapas, beer and dessert - in a relaxed and friendly way. We had plenty of time to enjoy the food and the chats at each place, with a short walk between each one. We wouldn’t hesitate to highly recommend this tour! 5/5 by Sue O’Connor 27-1-2018
